Television actor Mudit Nayar, who made his digital debut with the short film Driving Me Crazy opposite Tina Ahuja, says although the new-age love story revolves around an online dating app, in real life he met his wife through a friend and has never used an app to find love.
“Aparajita (his wife) and I met via a common friend and one thing led to another. When I met her, I instantly knew she was the one. I never used apps and I find it a bit difficult to relate to these things. Many of my friends use these apps. I feel it may be great to meet new people, but finding the love of your life is an altogether different experience. Maybe I am old school,” said Mudit, who has worked in TV shows like “Anamika”, “Yeh Hai Aashiqui”, “Ishaaron Ishaaron Mein”.
“Driving Me Crazy” is directed by Purnima Lamchhane and has released on the OTT platform Zee5.
Mudit feels OTT is the future. “The pandemic has been able to give a massive leap to the OTT platforms. I knew the writer-director Purnima as a journalist when she narrated the story. I was instantly attracted to the character and said yes to the film,” he recalled.
Telugu actor Anand Deverakonda talks about comparisons with brother Vijay Deverakonda
Telugu actor Anand Deverakonda has opened up on comparisons drawn between him and his superstar brother Vijay Deverakonda, saying it sometimes bothers him a little but does not hurt or affect him.
“The comparisons will always be there because we are brothers and we are very close in age. We are only two-and-a-half years apart. I saw my brother more than my parents because we grew up in the same boarding school. So, the similarities will be there because our thought processes are similar,” Anand told IANS.
Anand’s new film “Middle Class Melodies” recently dropped digitally, and he says his choices as an actor are different from his brother’s.
“The kind of cinema we are doing are very different. He is now in the big league. He is doing ‘space’ cinema. He has audiences that are waiting to see him sometimes more than the film. For me, it is completely about storytelling, not to say that Vijay is not doing great cinema. He is going to shock everyone with what comes next with his unique kind of cinema,” Anand said.
“The comparisons, I will be honest, sometimes do bother me a little, but not much. It doesn’t hurt me or affects me,” he added.
Anand says he is okay with it as it comes with his job.
“The scrutiny is a little more than on other actors. It takes 10 to 15 minutes from them to switch off from the fact that I am Vijay’s brother and then start seeing the character. So, the scrutiny is unfortunate but it is a given that it comes with my job. It is okay,” he summed up.
The Telugu comedy drama, “Middle Class Melodies” is directed by Vinod Ananthoju and also stars Varsha Bollamma. The film released on Amazon Prime Videos.
Ayushmann Khurrana: What worked for me is I decided to swim against the tide
Acclaimed actor Ayushamnn Khurrana is also a brand today. He attributes his success to his ability to be himself.
“I believe what has worked for me is that I decided to swim against the tide and was totally myself. I stayed true to who I am in real life while I was at it,” he said.
The actor says he believed that India was ready to see a different kind of entertaining cinema that was real, relatable and taboo-breaking “because I was ready to see such cinema, and I knew of many people who were having the same dialogue with me”.
Ayushmann says he is fortunate that people have loved his brand of cinema, which has hugely contributed to his equity.
“I believed that India wanted to bring out and talk about societal issues openly. I’m fortunate that the audience loved my brand of cinema, engaged and participated with my beliefs. What people perceive my equity to be today, comes from me being unafraid about my choices as a human being. If I wasn’t the man who believed in the things that I have raised my voice for, people would have sensed a disconnect,” he said.
The National Award-winning actor says his brand of cinema is a mirror image of his personality in real life.
“My films are an extension of my personality, my beliefs, my vision for my country. I think people understand that I want to do my best for society, for my fellow citizens and I don’t want to fail them ever.” he mentioned.
Ayushamann says he is going through the best time in his life.
“I definitely think that I’m going through the best phase of my career and I want this phase to continue for a long time,” admitted the actor.
He is rightfully enjoying his bonafide star status today. “It feels great because I know how much hard work I had to put in to be where I’m today. It is hugely humbling to see people believe in me and have faith in the kind of content that I stand for. It’s gratifying to see people relate to my journey because most of India go through the same drill while aspiring to find success,” he said.
“I’m one of them, I will always be one of them and bring out their stories and lives in the form of cinema because I’m deeply inspired by the heroism of the self-made, idealistic, inclusive people of India,” Ayushmann summed up.
